While not for everyone, it’s my current favorite modern SHMUP. As a bonus, the recent U.S. release has made it far easier (and cheaper) for you to check out.

Deathsmiles is the kind of game you rarely see for the Xbox 360, and it feels like a breath of fresh air.

An excellent and suitably manic 'bullet hell' shoot-em-up from Cave, Deathsmiles allows to to choose from a selection of inappropriately attired young witches, before flying through multiple stages of Halloween themed environments, blasting waves of monsters while avoiding a bazillion projectiles.

Games like Deathsmiles make it well worth the wait because the glut of play modes, crazy gameplay, and over-the-top boss battles draw you into a twitch-laden vortex from which it's brutally hard to escape. And you won't want to escape.

While hitting the maximum magic level of 1000 and unleashing all manner of hell, any moment my Xbox was going to pop at any moment, smoke bellowing out the back. It simply becomes too much. Then again, this is part of why Deathsmiles works. It’s no-hold barred old-school shmup action. If stripped of its additional content, Deathsmiles could have been an XBLA title. Instead Rising Star Games have created a niche product – a well presented old-school shmup with plenty of additional material to bring you back.

Cave kommt auf den Platz, schlägt - und enttäuscht nicht. Kein anderer Entwickler hat das Danmaku-Genre derart geprägt und vor allem in solcher technischer Raffinesse mobil gemacht. Deathsmiles war in der Spielhalle cool, hat vor kurzem auf der 360 Spaß gemacht und rockt auch das iPhone mächtig gewaltig. Aber gerade im Vergleich zur Konsolenfassung hat die Hosentaschenvariante einiges an Federn lassen müssen: Zwar gibt es einen neuen iPhone-Modus nebst frischer Heldin und Musik, aber dafür außer der Arcade-Variante keine weiteren Spielmodi - und damit auch keinen Mehrspieler. Außerdem ist es erstaunlich, dass Cave seine Spiele nur auf der edelsten iOS-Hardware laufen lässt, aber dann doch weder Retina-Unterstützung noch eine Universal App liefert. Nichtsdestotrotz: Die Action ist wahnwitzig und ruckelfrei, die Steuerung erneut bemerkenswert präzise - das Ding ist wieder einmal prädestiniert für die frenetische Ballerei zwischendurch.
